The data shows that 34 men and six women were released in Williamson County. The median age of the parolees was 37. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2017, and the oldest was a 59-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving drugs in 2016.
